Mom Of Girl Accused Of Bullying Released From Jail

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — The stepmother of a 14-year-old accused of bullying a Florida girl prior to her suicide has been released from jail on bond.

Polk County jail records show 30-year-old Vivian Vosburg bailed out Thursday night. The Lakeland Ledger reports a judge had lowered the bail amount from $300,000 to $14,000. Jail records do not list an attorney. Someone who answered the phone at a number listed for Vosburg said she no longer lived there.

Vosburg is the stepmother of one of the girls arrested in the bullying of 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick of Lakeland, who committed suicide.

According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, Vosburg’s arrest relates to a video posted on Facebook that shows children fighting and Vosburg striking a boy. She is charged with two counts of child abuse with bodily harm and four counts of child neglect.
